A reimagining of our traditional concert cycle, this series provided a full season of curated musical events featuring composers, practitioners, scholars, and artists. These virtual event celebrated significant milestones, illuminated important topics, and brought unique ideas and perspectives to our community. Click on the images below to watch!

We hosted two educational Discovery Series, each spanning five sessions, that highlighted voices in western classical music that have been under-represented due to embedded legacies of patriarchy and white supremacy. These series aimed to focus the attention of the PVS and our broader community of classical music lovers on the potential for positive change when the artistry of oppressed groups is not just understood, celebrated, and performed, but given real chances to develop in the first place.
